If your 351 didn't have 4v heads and at least a Holley 750, it would have
got stuck under my Torana's front bumper bar big time :)

I'm sure they did.
If you want a fairly good indicator of just how quick the LJ XU1 actually
was, see if you can find any footage of the 1972 Bathurst race on Youtube or
similar. It was an outstanding race, and the XU1's crowning moment.

We had a 1967 Mk1.
Like you I thought it drove very well and a lot better to drive than any
Falcon or Holden of the same era but they certainly weren't without
My biggest hate with them was the horrible inner drive shaft uni, IMO an
absolute PITA to replace and they needed replacing too frequently.
My favourite pommy car was a Mk1 GT Cortina, I wish I still had it, by
today's standards it was pretty ordinary but I loved it.
